Stir Fried Sesame Tatsoi

Stir Fried Sesame Tatsoi – A Mild Asian Green

Tatsoi is similar to Bok Choi, a mild Asian green. Unlike greens like kale and collard greens, the center stem softens as it cooks and does not need to be removed. This green is packed with a ton of nutrients, including carotenoids, vitamin C, folate, calcium, and potassium.  Other names are spinach mustard, spoon mustard, rosette bok choy, Japanese spinach.

This simple stir fry cooks up in less than 10 minutes. Toss in some thinly sliced chicken or beef for a meal, or serve it as a side dish along with your favorite Asian dishes.

  • 1 pound tatsoi
